The Republic of Bollonich is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 297 million Bollonischians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vreton. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bollonichian economy, worth 29.0 trillion Bollonicshes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,773 Bollonicshes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, and on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bollonich's national animal is the The Great Bollocsh Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bollonich is ranked 59,405th in the world and 30th in The Democratika for Largest Governments, scoring 17.23 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
